  • Introduction

    Welcome Home Inn Bed and Breakfast -  Delaware, Ohio, front view Located on six wooded acres, Welcome Home Inn is a Southern Farmhouse style home located a few minutes north of Columbus, Ohio. Nestled in the country, guests can relax to the music of singing birds, watch the deer poised quietly on the edge of the woods and observe the raccoons scampering near the house. You can even hike into the trees to see wildlife and nature at its best on the mile walking trail.

    Enjoy the flowering crab apple trees in the spring, stare at the rainbow of hues as trees burst into color in the fall or watch a winter wonderland develop in the winter. Sit on the huge wrap-around open porch highlighted with wicker furniture, or have breakfast on the large screened-in porch.

    An unusually large dining room with a grand piano set beneath two antique stained glass windows provides a romantic atmosphere for dining. The open living room, tastefully decorated with an antique mantle surrounding the fireplace, provides a cozy place to curl up with a book on a cool day. Oak antiques accent much of this area.
